      Keith Thirgood When my students complain that making a sketch takes time away from painting, I remind them that two hours of painting a bad composition is a lot more wasteful than ten minutes of sketching one. And the sketch is a lot easier to fix. Solve your problems i...  more

      Keith Thirgood Thomas, if you like the look of that umbrella, we could go in together and order two. That way we would get free shipping. Then one of us could pick up their umbrella from the other. Just a thought.

      Thomas Faires Keith, I couldn't find an umbrella at Woolfits or Deserres or Above Ground.. but I'm not sure what to buy yet. If you want to take advantage of cyber-Monday, you might as well go ahead. Maybe other members might be interested in going in on a multi-purchase.

      Thomas Faires I've finally been able to set aside some time to paint.
      Scarborough Bluffs - one of my favourite places to paint.
      Rouge River Old Finch Meander Area - a hidden gem in Toronto, north of the Zoo. I've been there twice this fall. No washrooms, so it can ...  more
